Ontohackers: Radical Movement Philosophy in the Age of Extinctions and Algorithms, Part I: Radical Movement Philosophy and the Body Intelligence R/evolution

Published: 05/15/2024

Ontohackers redefines what movement, worlds, and bodies are through the sense of proprioception reconceptualized as formless fluctuation field, a movement matrix that is itself also thought, and which underlies all life forms and fields including the inorganic. Our worlds are made of endless such entangled fields n-folding in never ending variation or enferance. The current[…]

Oblation: Essays, Parables, and Paradoxes

FORTHCOMING Summer 2024

Elements of this book, Oblation: Essays, Parables, and Paradoxes, defy reason. They do so for good reason. Much of what we do, much of what we think, is oblation: sacrifice, offering, to something or someone. The root of “oblation” (Hebrew: korban) is “to draw near” or “to dwell in.” It refers to what is brought[…]

Burning Diagrams in Anthropology: An Inverse Museum

Even the counterculture that embraced Reich, not least William[…]

Taunting the Useful

Taunting the Useful seeks to unsettle notions of[…]
